Bill Callahan “Outraged” At Tim BrownJanuary 23rd, 2013
Yesterday, both Tim Brown and Jerry Rice, two otherwise seemingly intelligent gents, made idiotic remarks claiming former Raiders coach Bill Callahan threw the Super Bowl to the Bucs because, per Brown, Callahan liked Chucky and hated the Raiders.
All day yesterday Callahan kept quiet but come towards midnight, he apparently had enough of his name being dragged through the mud and unloaded on Brown and the insane remarks, so reports Ed Werder of BSPN by way or Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
“I am shocked, saddened and outraged by Tim Brown’s allegations and Jerry Rice’s support of those allegations,” Callahan said in a statement released to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport. “To leave no doubt, I categorically and unequivocally deny the sum and substance of their allegation. To suggest otherwise, especially at this time when it involves the Super Bowl, is ludicrous and defamatory.
“Any suggestion that I would undermine the integrity of the sport that I love and dedicated my life to, or dishonor the commitment I made to our players, coaches and fans, is flat out wrong. I think it would be in the best interests of all including the game America loves that these allegations be retracted immediately.”
Joe thinks is it wise for NFL
warden commissioner Roger Goodell to launch an immediate investigation into this matter.
Let’s play devil’s advocate for a moment. Let’s just say Brown is right, even though it sounds as illogical as one can imagine. It’s not like we haven’t been inundated with illogical, unbelievable sports news of late.
If there is a hint of accuracy into what Brown (and Rice) claim, we are talking the worst sports crime since the Chicago Black Sox scandal.
With this nonsense floating just days before the Super Bowl, the NFL must protect its shield. It must protect its good name for advertisers, current and future, and for nothing else but the integrity of the game.
This investigation needs to be launched immediately in Joe’s eyes.
And if this clown Brown is proven to be lying, Joe believes he should lose his eligibility to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
If Callahan is correct, what Brown is doing to the Bucs and the NFL is no less than an outrage if not slander!
